    I'm sure that peace will be breaking out all over that area and everyone will be passing out flowers and candy before you know it.

    I think this summarizes the typical anti-Israel response.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Sure.

    The Palestinians are essentially Neanderthals, so arguably not even the same species as the Israelis.

    I don't think you can call the killing of sub human primates a "war crime" and keep a straight face while doing it.

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    I don't feel qualified to judge whether war crimes have been committed, but I do think that it's a possibility which should be checked out.

    Charges of War crimes by the UN against Israel should be taken with a grain of sand.

    I saw that and another statement and really do not quite see what crimes were committed. But I am sure that it bears watching. The fact that the UN bureaucracy are accusing and not the normal suspects in the General Assembly and that Obama is ambivalent are not usual.

    I think that is true about every country.
